What's Happening Here Can Be Felt by the Moon free pdf What's Happening Here Can Be Felt by the Moon" is the culmination of many years of creative effort by poet and artist Marta Byer White. She has crafted an autobiographical work built on fantasy, memory and symbolism - a travelogue of the 20th Century. A twin and daughter of culturally literate parents, White navigates her life as a witness to the world and its drama. The world is her stage and her words and art are the actors. Color, nuance and form are part of her poetry and her boxes - the messages they convey simultaneously reveal a personal and political view of the past and the future. Marta's description is righteously emotional.

About Marta Byer White

Marta White was born just after World War II and was deeply affected by her parents' experiences after the war and during the Depression. She is a child of Jewish intellectuals and was brought up in the Bronx, New York. Her art is an exploration into the power of the past lives of found objects as well as the feelings they evoke. The basis of this work is autobiographic, builds on fantasy, memory and symbolism in the tradition of the Dada and surrealist artists of the 1920s. Inspired by artists Roberta Marks and Joseph Cornell, Marta creates boxed environments, assemblage collages, featuring elements of surprise. Unexpected juxtapositions allow her subconscious to express itself, transcend identity and allow for multiple interpretations so that the viewer sees each component in a new light each time a poem is read or a box is viewed. Besides having been an actress and a theater director, Marta has had an eclectic career as an artist, set designer and hotel owner. Within her Gatsby era hotel, she began to see rooms and space as big boxes. The rooms are filled with unique objects and the walls and tables are used to exhibit her work. She now lives in a large scale version of her father's original doll house, complete with white shingles, green shutters and the mahogany staircase. "My spiritual life, my journeys, my environment and my art defines me."
